About Kairos Water, Inc
Kairos’ commercial solution features a multifunction leak detection device (Noah™) and advanced water meter (Moses™) that work together to identify and mitigate catastrophic water events. Attached to Noah is a leak detection membrane that can sense a few drops of water where water should not be. These membranes are available in a variety of formats to fit any appliance, fixture, or space. The Moses™ water meter does more than measure water usage, it can detect large and small leaks and, if necessary, shut off water to a living space to avert catastrophic flooding.
Note: This role is a work-from-home position using teleconferencing tools. In-person all-hands meetings may be scheduled as needed. The ideal candidate (Embedded Electronics Engineer) is located in the northeast Ohio region, but we will consider applicants from other areas. Kairos Water Inc. is headquartered in Alanta, Georgia.
